About the course
Few career paths can be as challenging or rewarding as nursing. Adult Nursing at Hull takes a research-led, patient-centred approach and is split 50:50 between time on campus – for example, in our authentic clinical skills facility – and mentored placements within the region’s NHS trusts. This programme will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver high-quality, evidence-based health care. Through the academic dimension of the course, you will gain key, valuable theoretical skills which you will apply in a working environment.
The placements you undertake on this course will teach you clinical practice skills which are supported by timetabled activities in a simulated environment. You will learn to provide care to a wide range of adults, differing in age and health needs which provide a necessary dimension to your nursing experience. The placements will prepare you to deliver and eventually lead and manage high quality care. Upon graduation, you will be awarded an academic and professional award enabling you to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a qualified registered nurse.
How will the planned funding changes affect me?
From 2017/18, NHS bursaries for students will no longer be available on this course. Instead, you will be able to apply for a student loan to support your studies. To find out more about how this will affect you, please click here for full details.
If you require a Tier 4 student visa to study or if your first language is not English you will be required to provide acceptable evidence of your English language proficiency level.

Adult nurses leave the Faculty and go on to the wide range of career opportunities available for them.
Some choose to specialise into areas such as critical care, many go onto community posts as district nurses. Management and leadership are desirable career options as are opportunities for practice education and research. Adult nurses leaving the University of Hull have been successful in finding employment either before graduation or with a short time. Many stay in the area but some have moved away to successful career in other areas and some have gone abroad to countries such as Australia and New Zealand.
With an extensive portfolio of NHS funded continuing professional development opportunities, students can expect to maintain their relationship with their ‘alma mater’- all nurses need to be able to mentor the next generation of nurses so the mentorship in practice module is usually the first port of call. From there adult nurses can study at masters level using our flexible framework to undertake education in key areas of practice including leadership and advanced practice.
We also work with our NHS partners on more bespoke and specific development for staff and teams.
